The Personal Soundtrack T-Shirt: An April Fool’s prank turned real

Over at ThinkGeek they had the above T-Shirt advertised claiming it was the answer to all of life’s mundane problems. That being the often mundane nature of life. 

It was hailed as the Personal Soundtrack T-Shirt. The piece of clothing that would enhance your life by adding music to it, thanks to a built-in speaker and remote control.

It was, of course a load of baloney. But due to popular demand it is being turned into a real product.

The T-Shirt works by playing pre-recorded sounds at the press of a button of the wearers choosing. So for example, if on a romantic date with your other half press the button which plays a romantic theme or jingle etc. 

Although I wouldn’t be caught wearing one, gotta admit the design look’s pretty cool.Sound like your thing? Then get your name on the list, over here.

Could there be a new Windows Vista in 2009?

Could a new Vista be coming so soon?

According to TG Daily ‘industry insiders’ have confirmed a new version of windows has been ‘shipped’ as code to be validated.

Even though the existing Windows Vista has barely been out, the so-called new version could be out in the second half of 2009, if reports are to be believed.

If you’re thinking “That’s a bit soon isn’t it”, then you’d be right. Microsoft originally planned to release the new version in 2010, but then changed it to the earlier date. We’re not sure why though.

Other points mentioned by TG Daily are the ability of the sofware to handle a ‘heterogeneous graphics system consisting of multiple graphics cards from different vendors’ and a new integrated media center that at the moment only supports PC speakers.

Wannabe early adopters will have to wait to hear when they can ty it out as the Beta date has not yet been decided.
